About Me
Hi! I'm Steve and I have been reading for fifty-four years. My influences are all over the map, but mostly spring from genre works. I love to play with words. I've sounded a few clinkers -- better that I sometimes cringe when proofreading than that I fall asleep. The first item of my "faith" in the ink trade is that each piece finds its own audience --- if you are good enough to seize on your luck when it drifts past your fingertips.
